I'm a 10 year veteran in the training industry working heavily with 8570 requirements and experience working with Business, Government, and Military organizations. As a current AFCEA member, I excel at customized solutions and enjoy organizing straight-forward training and certifications. I'm also a US Air Force and Army specialist with years of involvement assisting transitioning troops to utilize their Post 9/11 GI Bill® benefits. Now what do fishing in Alaska, pest control, and Lagoon have in common? They're all a part of my great Utah story.
My Name is Darryl A. Strayhorn II, I’m originally from Pittsburgh PA (Yes I’m a fan of the 6x Superbowl champions Pittsburgh Steelers).
My mother is from Philadelphia PA, and my father is from Pittsburgh Pa. They meet at Penn State. (I am not a Nittany Lions fan). I moved to California with my mother at the age of 5. I would spend the summer months is Pittsburgh with my Father and the winter months with my mother in Los Angles. The majority of my life has been spent in California, so I do consider myself a pacific coaster.
That is the first selfie I've ever taken. We've come a long way in technology from when I was my kids' age. I remember one of my first jobs was for the City of Anaheim through the Junior Training Partnership Act (JTPA). One summer in high school I worked at City Hall for the Fire Authority, and the next summer I worked for the Housing Department for City of Anaheim. This was not only my first exposure to working in government, but it also got me really interested in working with computers. (Of course I was introduced to computers in elementary, but this was something beyond playing Oregon Trail!)
After high school, I had a few setbacks, but I got back on track when I attended a learning center, similar to New Horizons. I paid my own money to learn Microsoft Office, Windows NT, Netware, A+. I then set out to start my career as an IT professional.
It’s time for a change.
Those are the words I said as I packed up my car for a 30 hour drive to Las Vegas, from Michigan.
I started my career in Las Vegas in the Finance and Insurance industries. Three years ago, I joined New Horizons Learning Group. It was the best career move I could have asked for. There are a variety of reasons why, but I’ll get to the most important reason here shortly.
My name is Alfred Morales and I've lived in the Inland Empire my whole life. I'm originally from Chino, CA and graduated from Ontario Christian High School and Cal Poly Pomona. Most of my mom's side of the family are also in the IE. My first professional experience while working in college was working for the Ontario Reign as a ticket sales & customer service intern. It wasn't until working with New Horizons that I would find myself full circle with the Ontario Reign.
